In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer.
This statistic has become even more real this spring when the most special woman in our lives was diagnosed with breast cancer: our mom. She has been fighting her battle like a champion and is one of the strongest women we know!
Another amazing woman of our lives also had to battle with cancer: our Aunt Laurie. Sadly, her life was taken much too soon from cancer. Unfortunately, the type of cancer she had does not have a cure. That needs to change! People as good and kind as our Aunt Laurie should live long full lives because this world needs people like her. We all do.
This year we, Kyle and Julia, will be swimming together on Team Swammers in honor of our mom! We will also be swimming in memory of our Aunt Laurie, with this being the eight year anniversary of her passing. We want to honor these two strong and amazing women!
On June 22nd we will be participating in the Fairfield County 1.5 Mile Open Water Swim. We would like to thank all of you that have generously donated in the past! Your donations have made a difference!
Please support us by sponsoring our swim and making a gift. The money you give will go towards cancer research, prevention and treatment and will make an impact in the fight to find a cure. Thank you for your generosity and may it lead to a cancer-free world!
